31 trucks made the 1,400-kilometer journey from Moerdijk to Budapest

Van der Vlist handled the transportation of a complete production line to a factory near Budapest, Hungary.

Made in China, the cargo was shipped from Shanghai Port to Rotterdam on flatracks and consisted of 39 oversized crates with dimensions up to 3.42 meters wide and about 4 meters high, the company said in a statement.

Once in Rotterdam, the shipment was barged to the Van der Vlist Terminal in Moerdijk where the crates were then unloaded from the flatracks and stored for a short time at Van der Vlist’s secure facility.

Van der Vlist loaded the cargo on 31 Van der Vlist trucks for the final 1,400-kilometer leg of the journey down to Hungary.
